    Challenge BUG

    Guys, please know that when you challenge there are is a bug that happens sometimes where it will disconnect. So just know if you are going to challenge, theres a good chance you may have to replay the game. IMO don't challenge unless its a win/lose type play at the end of a game and its CLEARLY a mess up call.

    ya, and your opponent has been trying to get back with you to get the game played. Try and schedule something with him please.

    I say new rule no more challenging plays. There is a new patch coming out they might plug it in that release.

    Yes.....but if it is an obvious blown call I still think teams should be able to challenge. There is no sense in losing a game when the call was obviously wrong. I dunno, it sucks but I'm not sure there is much we can/should do. It would suck more to have somebody, say...in the Super Bowl lose on a late play because of an obvious missed call....but the can't challenge it cuz we said so.

    I dunno. . .my vote would be against outlawing challenges. Let's wait and see what this patch does.

    sdunlap, I agree with you but if the cost of challenging a play is a complete game restart. You have to do whatever you have to do to avoid that. I doubt that this bug will still be around when the OMFL playoffs start but until that patch comes out you have to stop challenging plays. There is really no other option unless the players agree coming at the start that you are willing to restart the game each time a play is challenged.

    I don' think its an 'every time you challenge' bug. I have challenged many plays in both OMFL and MEGA and have never had to restart a game.

    We could put a rule in that if the game d/c on a challenge then restart the game and get everything back to where it was (i.e. score, time, possesion) and finish from there.

    I think we should only challenge on fumbles. I know 100% if the fumble call was correct or not just from playing the game alot. The overturned fumbles are pretty obvious when the guy has been down for a lil while. Use good sense. The sideline catches should be OFF LIMITS to challenges.

    I didn't even know about this bug. In the last game against the Raiders, we each used a challenge and nothing happened. He challenged a fumble and I challenged a spot, and it didn't disconnect either time.

    It's an old bug in the game actually. It's actually gotten alot better since the game launched in August but it still happens.
